If you’ve been thinking about investing in an Apple Watch for a while but never been able to justify the price tag, you may be interested to learn that the Series 5 models are now reduced by up to 37 per cent on Amazon.
Allowing you to make and take calls via your wrist, view text messages and social notifications, find out the weather, check the football results, track your steps and sleep, make contactless payments and other useful functions, there are so many reasons to upgrade from a watch that just tells the time.
The Apple Watch Series 5 devices have all the same features as Apple’s newest watch release, the Series 6, except it runs on a different processor, which is slightly slower but not noticeably so.
A number of Apple Series 5 models are now reduced on Amazon in the Boxing Day sale, with the space black watch with a 44mm display and black sport band (left) available for £471.99 and the stainless steel with a 44mm display (right) currently reduced to £541.49
The Series 6 models are also available in more colourways, but there are no shortage of unisex designs available for the Series 5 in both metallic and sport wristbands.
Included in the Amazon deal are options with gold, space grey and silver stainless steel straps or as well as space grey and gold sport ones made from durable synthetic rubber.
The biggest saving is on the space black watch with a 44mm display with the black sport band, which is now available for £471.99 and saves you more than £277 on the regular retail price of £749.
It’s a great time to buy it if you’re planning to set some fitness goals for 2021, as for less than £500, you’ll have a watch that can give you workouts for all forms of exercise and metrics that show your heart rate, time, distance, speed and more.
For extra motivation you can see what your friends are doing for fitness and set challenges for you to all compete against each other.
You’ll have access to all the 50 million songs in the Apple music library plus podcasts and audiobooks to motivate you along the way and to keep you entertained wherever you are, whether that’s at home, on the commute or in the supermarket.
The Apple Watch Series 5 in gold with 44mm display is now reduced by 32 per cent on Amazon, down from £505.99 to £243.01
And even more impressive is that the watch has a cellular connection to connect to mobile networks for calls and data use so there’s no need to drag a large phone around with you anymore.
With an average rating of 4.8 out of 5, the watch has received rave reviews from shoppers who think it was well worth the investment.
‘Absolutely love my Apple Watch, it was worth every penny!’ praised one satisfied customer. ‘I decided on the cellular and again, I’m so glad I did. I’m able to see messages, answer calls and go out for my walks or running without having to drag my iPhone 8 Plus.
‘Nothing beats the quality of Apple. Even the packaging is real quality.’
Another reviewer who gave it a full five stars added: ‘I bought this for my husband and he loves it. The battery lasts better than the 1st series and having the bigger 44mm screen makes it easier to read or compose messages.’
If you’re not planning on using it for sport, then the metallic straps mean it’s smart enough to wear to the office or on date night and the 18-hour battery will last you all day.
